FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! LOVE WHAT YOU DO! DO WHAT YOU LOVE!
“There is no reason to do stuff you hate, None! Promise me you won’t. Whatever you need to do. Do It. Look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself – What do I want to do every day for the rest of my life. Do That! Then you need to work so hard. Your talent isn’t enough, you have to put in so much work. If you want to be rich and successful, work! Hustle! Keep Hustling! Hustling is the most important word ever!” – Gary Vaynerchuk
I’ve been in Hamburg, Germany for the past few weeks and tonight as I prepare to depart this beautiful city by dawn, I haven’t stopped thinking about the powerful words I heard from a wise and older gentleman earlier this evening.
I went down to my hotel’s bar and ordered my favorite creme liqueur based cocktail – Brandy Alexander while I sat down to watch football. This gentleman walked in and sat down on a table next to mine and coincidentally he ordered the same cocktail I was having and soon a conversation ensued between us.
We spoke generally about cocktails and drinks, I told him I was a blogger and had written an article about that drink on The Gentleman’s Staple Drinks which I’m sure he would find interesting. I shared it with him, he read it and that’s how our conversation switched to lifestyle, success, and entrepreneurship. At some point he said
“Hey Kobi, I’m really glad you are following your dreams. Are you aware a lot of people do not set goals for themselves?
Most of them have dreams, very big dreams but they make no real effort to follow those dreams through. They put money first as their priority in life which is so bad.
They settle for the jobs they don’t like, they go about living their lives to please other people and above all they don’t have the courage to follow their heart and intuition.”
” I want to tell you something – Anyone who decides to give up on his dreams just because of his job, his family or friends has failed in life.
One needs to decide what he wants in life early enough and go after it, no matter what it takes, so as long as it makes him or her happy.”
I smiled and nodded in agreement, I am certain he wasn’t so sure why I smiled. But here was the reason… His statement was only reaffirming what I have known all along.
I’ve always believed that success is possible for anyone who believes in his dreams and pursues it with passion.
I believe so much in people doing what they love and that if one hasn’t found what it is yet or isn’t looking out for it, he or she should start looking out for it and never stop until it’s found.
Having said this, find the article link below which contains My Top 20 Quotes that continuously inspires me to follow my dreams by doing what I love. I hope you’d be inspired as you read this. Enjoy!
We’ve talked about classy men, alpha males, stylish gents, true gentlemen etc. One trait common to all of these high breeds of dominant and stylish male species is that they always follow their dreams and passion by doing what they love.
For those of you reading this right now who have been procrastinating, craving a change and to get out of the rat race – my advice to you is JUST DO IT! If you’re not passionate and fulfilled in your current circumstances, you should change them.
If you consider yourself an entrepreneur but find yourself stuck in a job you don’t love, I’d advise you to first have a plan, then start working toward your goal immediately and in parallel with your job till you are ready to quit and pursue your goal fully.
